Having hobbies and interests is great for health and wellbeing. Finding activities that we enjoy keeps us occupied, stimulated, entertained and challenged, and gives us a sense of purpose and satisfaction, particularly if we improve at something over time. At the Virtual Village Hall, you’ll find a wide range of activities to try, most of them designed for complete beginners, including regular courses.
